Building Roots needs your help to make our dream of a sustainable urban farm on Queen St E a reality in 2018! This unique project will produce super-local, organically grown and diverse foods to Moss Park Market, affordably, for those who need it. Your donation today below will help us start this Spring as soon as the snow melts!
In 2017 we produced a significant amount of food as a pilot at Ashbridge Estate- grown by our partners including the Black Farmers and Growers Collective.
Some of the harvest was delivered and sold in our (first ever!) Shipping Container Grocery Store as a pilot – an exciting innovation with great success. Residents loved getting fresh kale and callaloo at one dollar a bunch to cook for their families.
Building Roots is wholly committed to the vision of a market that has the best quality food at affordable prices for the community we serve. And it is vital that our skilled urban farmers obtain a living wage.
By donating to our Urban Farm at Ashbridge Estate, you’ll feel good knowing you helped grow a vital project, and contributed to the hard working farmers that made it happen. You’ll also become a Building Roots Supporter, sharing in special updates about our work across the region – your name will appear on our website and in the Market.
As a special gift, we are offering a bouquet of fresh herbs for the first 25 donors to this project. Please donate now, we are hoping to have the project fully funded by March, 2018! Contact us with any questions or about making a larger donation/partnership opportunity, a charitable receipt may be offered.
